I was sort of figuring that would be the case... works ok for me since I also picked up an EU tank from a guy in Spain dumping the charcoal canister and getting +1.5L extra fuel. On this bike that's an extra 25 miles or maybe more.

The shock is pretty darned amazing! If anything, the back end is better than the front now with the YZ forks. Soaks up the rocks like you would not believe!
Great to hear. I can't wait take mine for a test ride.... soon....
